Linha 28 - the tram line 28 running through the center of Lisbon, Portugal, is probably one of the most famous tram lines worldwide. For me it is fascinating since the line dates back to 1914 - and one can easily imagine Portugal's most famous author, Fernando Pessoa, having used it after its inauguration on a daily basis. It is kind of out of time. Years ago, I traveled the line to both ends - Martim Moniz and Prazeres. Today, mass tourism in Lisbon has increased in a way that traveling the line means joining long waiting lines at the endpoints and sitting - or standing - in immensely crowded cars. So I decided to follow part of the line’s tracks by foot and photograph its cars by night. I choose the Alfama side – but the tracks through the Bairro Alto would have been equally fascinating. Lisbon has introduced modern trams – e.g. from the center city to Alges near the mouth of the Tejo river, but those old trolley cars cannot be replaced by a modern substitute – they can turn corners impossible to navigate for a modern tram.

#2 Linha 28



#3 Tracks (Alfama, with the Igreja do Sao Vicente de Fora in the background)



#4 Linha 28 to Prazeres



#5 Catch of the night - three cars in a row



#6 Turning the corner



#7 Attention pedestrians! The 28 is coming!



#8 Embarking the 28



#9 Just tracks (near the Cathedral)



#10 At the stop (with the Cathedral in the background)

Great photos! Very atmospheric, expressionistic
They look like the 1920s.
I only have one comment. The most famous Portuguese writer, in my opinion, is Jose Saramago
Sony a7R4, a6400. E, A and MD lenses.

If I understand correctly the information I found, the old Remodelados on Lisbon tram network were built between 1935 and 1940.

Really liked this set Harald, hope you don't mind it reminded me of your Third Man and some of your San Francisco night shoots, now I hear that unforgettable zitar in the background.

Beautiful, Harald. BW mode let you keep the atmosphere of the past. Only this modern van on #10 is interrupting this beautiful series.
I like them all. TFS

Thank you for your kind comments! It's been a fun night to wait for the trolley cars pass by and take photos of them - so I am glad I could share it!

Wow, great set.
Indeed, very moody and completely "spot on".

Love this set. Very atmospheric and moody, and very fitting of the subject matter.
Perhaps a couple might be added to the Cities, Lisboa, Portugal thread.

I love old trams and you've done them proud here. The mono treatment and shooting after sunset is very effective in the narrow streets. I've never been to Portugal but have ridden on a Lisbon tram, an example from 1930 runs on the Birkenhead tramway in northwest England.
